Astronomical Imaging Equipment

Some of the various bits of equipment members brought along to compare and contrast.

Wednesday’s meeting of the Imaging Group was well attended by members and took a workshop format.  We had demonstrations and discussion of the various methods of attaching a camera to a telescope, including some troubleshooting for those having issues.  There followed a lively discussion of the relative merits of different cameras, webcams and CCD’s used for astronomical imaging.  The evening concluded with a video presentation on webcam planetary imaging and image processing.
